Mercury Paper produces household paper products, including FIORA toilet paper and paper towels, which are manufactured for Oasis Brands, which is headquartered in Winchester. These companies have made FIORA tissue the fastest-growing retail tissue brand in the U.S.
Company officials said Virginia offered the workforce needed by Mercury Paper and a strategic location.
